Subway Observations (Poem)


Earth in tectonic walking
Pigeons in paragliding
Ants in their pious pilgrimages.

Earphones arrested to
the solitary moods
and introvert chats
of urban-horses.

Station swelling
like a soda can
with time hungry zombies
and pre-mature chuck Taylor all stars.

Sapiens carrying philosopher stones
called iPhones
turning their lives
caged and combed
to baser chords of life.

trains move by
with their somber
easter songs
and carbon noises.

Far from the gaze of the sky
the de-oxygenated fishes
rush up to climb up
and take in the brown gases.

Bags glued to the
shoulder blades
or some anatomical stuff.

is the motion of civic legs
like a troubling tractor
in Smallville.

All rushing to spread
their sticky legs
like a lava
like a snooping state
or some Australorp rooster.

— Drunken escalator.
